Suspension

Ok well Im looking to change my suspension. Im currently riding on stock shocks with coilovers, however; it rides like its all welded together. I m looking to spend about 1000 dollar to do it right. Any suggestion on what I should go for would be helpful. Keep in mind I want it Low and with 15"

And does anybody have the OMNI POWER setup if so let know how it is and whetheor not it will work with the setup I want.

Thx in advance

you have a lotta choices to make.

adjustable dampening or not? do you want "wowstunnastatus" or do you just want parts that work? Omni isht is supposed to work really nicely when set up correctly. I use their camber kit in the front (and rear), but I use H&R coilovers. I like the H&R coilover construction better than Tein at the time when I bought them. Go out and look at various susp and pick one that suits your budget and is really well built. Progress, Omni, H&R, Tein are just a few decent choices.

After I wrote the post I realized that there are probably lots of post similar to mine seeing that this is the susp and performance forum so I did some reading. It seems omnis are pretty good and at 899 meet my budget so I think I m going to take that path. I guess I ll just talk to John lo himself.

Are tokico and say H&R spring similar in price and performance?? and if so adjustable?

I appriciated those who have already responded

there are two ways to do it right

1 - dedicated coil-overs (Omni, Tein, etc)
2 - spring and shock (Illuminas, Koni Yellows with H&R race, etc)

either way will bring you good results, but with a grand to dump, i'd go dedicated coil-overs such as omni.

honda-tech has many opinions of omni, not all charming, but seems most people say omni is a good set-up.
